News Story Of The Day: Man Assaults Cousin Over TV Show

I watched about ten minutes of "Game Of Thrones" the other night. It isn't worth fighting over.

This reminds me of how people like to get in their cars after a movie like The Road Warrior or The Fast And Furious and tear out of the parking lot like they're in a drag race.

Oh, and guess where this happened. Yup. Florida. (WTF, Florida?)

From The Smoking Gun.

Man Battered Kin During Argument Over HBO's "Game Of Thrones"

Meet Michael Podniestrzanski.

The Florida man, 23, was arrested last night after an argument over the new HBO fantasy show “Game of Thrones” turned violent.

As will happen during shows “based on medieval times,” Podniestrzanski and his cousin “got into a verbal altercation” over which of the cable program’s characters was going to win, according to a Manatee County Sheriff’s Office report.

“Game of Thrones,” which premiered last Sunday night, is based on the first book in a series of “epic fantasy” novels written by George R.R. Martin.

With the argument between Podniestrzanski and Joshua Ross escalating, Podniestrzanski allegedly “took a swing at” his kin. After scuffling for a bit, Podniestrzanski’s cousin “ended up getting thrown in to the front window during the altercation.”

Podniestrzanski was arrested for misdemeanor domestic battery and transported to the county jail, where he is currently being held.


  1. I do NOT understand these people. I want to smack 'em upside the head and say, "Move out of your grandma's basement, get a job, get a decent haircut, and get down on your knees and beg your parents' forgiveness."

  2. What a wuss - he couldn't even throw his cousin through the window? At least that's how I take "he threw his cousin in to the window." To me that says he got thrown at the window, but not hard enough to break it.

  3. I would fight the both of them ... over when the book series is going to be finished.

  4. I haven't seen the show referred to, but these two sound like they would fit right in to the "medieval times" that it is based on.

  5. That reminds me of a fight my sister and I had shortly after the premiere of Punky Brewster. Bitch had it coming.

  6. TV show or not this kinda thing was bound to happen with these two geniuses.

    If it hadn't been "Game of Thrones", it'd have been a fight over who's tougher in the WWE, or who drank the last bottle of Pabst, or who cut the cheese in the sun-room.

    I have family that recently retired to Florida and they told me the last time they came up for a visit that there's literally something wrong with a lot of the people they've met down there.

    My aunt's favorite story to tell is about the neighbor who encouraged his kids to play with the gators that'd occasionally come through the neighborhood.

  7. Sigh...when is New Jersey going to be in the news again???? Keep repeating to self: "I love Florida in the winter, I love Florida in the winter..."
